Phillies Fan Injured After Phanatic Shoots Hot Dog Into Stands
Baseball fans are apparently just as susceptible to strange injuries as baseball players.
Kathy McVay, a Philadelphia Phillies fan, went to a game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday, and she got hit right between the eyes by a flying hot dog that was shot out of a hot dog cannon by the Phillie Phanatic mascot.
"It just came out of nowhere. And hard," she said. "He shot it in our direction, and bam. It hit me like a ton of bricks."
The blow messed up her face pretty good, so she went to the hospital to get checked out. Kathy says she's okay, other than a "small hematoma" in her eye.
She isn't considering legal action, but she wants fans to be aware of how dangerous flying hot dogs can be. The Phillies have apologized, and offered her free tickets when she's ready to come back.
